WA Holiday DUI Campaign Now Features a Designated Driver Gift Card!

Just in time for the holidays,  law enforcement officers will be watching for impaired drivers. But this year, you can actually give the gift of safe driving.

Starting November 27th, and lasting through January 1st,  police are going to be stepping up DUI enforcement with the holiday Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign.  This year, though, you can actually give the gift of safe driving.

The Washington State Traffic Safety Commission announced Wednesday you can download free “gift cards,” where you can offer your services as a designated driver this holiday season.    They can be downloaded and printed from the Traffic Safety Commission website.   You fill one out, sign it, and give it to a friend, loved one, family member, or anyone else who is going to be attending a holiday party or event where alcohol is served.

The premise is simple:  You are, by giving the “gift” card,  offering to act as their designated driver in case they cannot take the wheel.

The Traffic Safety Commission says, based upon previous years statistics, that 49 drivers or passengers will die on Washington roadways this holiday season.  From 2008 through 2012, that was the average for fatalities, many alcohol related.

If you know someone who’s going to be celebrating this holiday season, why not help them stay safe by giving one of these cards?   Click on the button below to go directly to the link to download and print one.
